Keys to the Coven: Demonic Intervention Series by Vicky Loebel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This book showed me a completely new way to look at demons and demon hierarchy. In a crowded genre of paranormal romance, this one really stood out as a unique creation.
Max is a demon, but he's not really a bad demon. He collects karma, which fuels all sorts of things, and eventually pushes you up the ranks from demon, to arch-demon, to angel. It seems a little strange, but is explained beautifully. I was immediately rooting for the lonely, brooding, and sometimes slutty demon. A promise he makes to a sorceress in the heat of battle ends up pushing him onto Felicity's doorstep. Or really her mother's doorstep. Either way, the two of them immediately fall into lust, which is a little awkward, because Felicity should be cleaning out her deceased mother's house for sale.
Felicity goes from logical and normal to rather extraordinary in a few short chapters. Inheriting her mother's house is the least of her inheritance. Turns out, all the magic tricks her mother was showing her were actually real and she's now the sorceress who must find an evil object or there will be much doom. Some abusive childhood stories aside, this book read like the most awesome of urban fantasies and had me hooked from the start. There was a good balance of romance, action, magic, and fantasy. I'm eager to see where these two end up in future books (of which I hope there are many!).
